DrivePool and Scanner with Seagate 2TB Desktop SSHD Solid State Hybrid Drive (ST2000DX001)

Recommended Posts

I need to replace a hard drive in my WHS 2011 box.  I was wondering if anyone had experience with using the solid state hybrid drive with StableBit DrivePool and Scanner.  Since it is a hybrid ssd, does the ssd optimizer work with it?

The SSD Optimizer works with any drive, SSD or not.  It says "SSD" because generally, that's going to be the type of drive generally used. 


So, "yes".

      The first WD 4TB Red I installed in my WHS2011 DrivePool on January 30, 2014 is going to be retired.  DrivePool was sending me Smart Warnings via email regarding excessive head parkings.  I yanked it out and replaced with a WD 6TB Red.  
      Got 5+ years out of the WD 4TB Red so that's not bad!  My very first WD 3TB RED is still going strong in my DrivePool -- it's got to be pushing 6+ years now.
      Currently, my DrivePool is made of 6 drives, all Reds: 1 3TB, 4 4TB, and now the single 6TB.

      I just got a Surface 2 running Windows 8.1 RT.  I am looking for a all in one , printer, scanner copier that will run on the 8.1 RT.  Has any found a product that will work?  The windows compatibility site isn't very helpful.   Thanks

      I would like to use the camera to take a picture of a meeting agenda and import the image or a pdf into one note 
      I found a couple of apps, but either the lighting is bad. Or the camera quality is so poor, I can't take a picture of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper and read the text on it.
      Any suggestions on apps, camera settings, or how I can do this in one note.
      I generally use the "metro" version of RT though I recognize the desktop version does have additional capabilities (pen input )

      Hi All,
      I am setting up a MicroServer with Windows Home Server 2011 running as a file server at my home (local area network).
      On my old file server, I was able to scan documents at my Brother MFC and send them directly to a the user's folder on the file-server via FTP.
      WHS 2011 is proving a little more challenging to setup.  Could someone please help with how to configure WHS2011?
      I've seen the youtube video by Mike on setting up WHS 2011 and FTP, but it only enables one central storage folder, rather than sending scanned documents to a user's individual folder.
      any help much appreciated.

      I am replacing the C drive on WHS 2011 with an SSD.  I am in the process of installing everything from scratch due to stupidity.  When I went to the SableBit website to reinstall Scanner and Drivepool, I was surprised to see the DrivePool plug-ins.  I would like to know how the experts feel about these additions.  
      SSD Optimizer:  I have read that the flash portion of an SSD drive has a limited number of transactions after which it will begin to fail.  While the number of transactions before failure is admittedly quite large, would the ssd optimizer speed up the SSD disk's failure?  Or, is the transaction rate before failure so high that it really does not matter?
      Order File Placement:  Is order file placement where one disk is filled at a time, the best way to go?  Or, is the default where all of the disks are filled equally the best?  Or rather than spinning all of the disks all of the time, is it better to start with a couple of disks in the default mode and add a disk when you need it.  Thus, saving wear and energy?
      Disk Space Equalizer:  I must confess that I do not really see much of a difference between equalizing by free space remaining, equalizing by percent used space and the default method of equalizing by placing new files onto the disk with the most free space.  And, I am open to being shown why one method should be preferred over the other.
      Perhaps it would be good to add that I am interested in adding the Office Maven add-ins for Quicken and Office, and utilizing them to minimize memory usage on a couple of Surface Pro 4's.  Also due to starting over, I was able to expand the C:\ partition from 60 to 210 with the use of the free version of Partition Magic Server Software.  So, I am in a unique position with regard to room on the OS partition if that matters.
